Absolutely right. ‘What works for me may not work for you’=I haven’t measured it ’This works well but it needs confirmation with x/y/z’=I haven’t measured it ‘It gives a lot of signals but you need to filter them’=I have measured it and it was as ...

Hi Simz, DTCC is a different ballpark to tick volume or futures data. If tick data is a shadow's shadow, futures are a shadow and proper tier1 option data is the real deal (even though it's options) because of how options are used by t1 to warehouse ...

Simz, it is available - I've been using it for nearly a decade. Check out DTCC. Covers around 60% of fx option turnover since Dodd Frank - basically every option worldwide that involves the $. They used to publish it for open access but whether or ...

Ah yes... mostly yes. But this only applies to temporal edges. They come and go, they make a lot of people money in the short term, but if you're not in charge of them (fixing the fix, NFP manipulation, Frankfurt reversals, HFT strategies, even ...

Thanks GE, always good to hear whats going on outside your own bubble. Bond traders rule the earth eh? Knew there was someone pulling the strings Sounds a good group - my own personal trading key was exactly that; establish how the market ...

Nice, you've got some interesting experience there for sure GE. Have you met any who make money from alpha purely in FX? I know Chicago is the beating heart of self-started traders but over here in London I also expected to find a hell of a lot ...

You can't easily compare years in the market because 1 year full time professional > 1 year full time retail > 1 year sticking on a trade or two after work but I get the idea. Three things I've seen over the years... 1 - the mentor phenomenon. A bit ...

Couldn't agree more but one question. Where, on God's earth, did you find 110 good traders? I've been at this over a decade now, and I've met two who were on the same page. Two. Out of way over a 1000. Real world, professional and retail.

Personally I'd spend all your time researching something concrete and stop trading. It's not hard to trade when you have a series of traffic lights in place, otherwise you'll end up in a multi-year battle of you vs the markets, and it doesn't have ...

It's an odd system they've got here, where flags are given according to the popularity of posts, in other words it has absolutely zero correlation to experience or profitability. Case in point; ex bank trader came on here who knew far more than ...

Blob, I see FF experts are out in force. That aside - out of curiosity - you ever applied any of your FX discoveries to another field? And you ever followed the rabbit warren of the lineage?

What a bunch of scumbags. Tell them to go take a running jump into the Cagayan river and tell them you'll sue unless you get your money back. And tell everyone who these lowlives are. And... so you know, FX is not a lovely world where useful ...

Try telling that to my mate who's mum just died from Covid, and his 45-year old wife has had long covid for 4 months now and is incapable of climbing the stairs without needing a lie down.

Since 2012. Trading is a full time knowledge career. Full time because when I'm not in a trade, I'm researching how to improve. This is a brutal business, I've never ever seen anyone less than 100% committed succeed. And knowledge career, because ...

Amen. This thread, honestly. 3/4 of the viewpoints could be decimated by 5 minutes of googling, makes my mind boggle.
